Abu Dhabi’s Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC) is inviting contractors to pre-qualify for the main contract to build the Guggenheim museum on Saadiyat Island.

The scope of the works includes concrete substructure, concrete superstructure, structural steelwork, glulam timber structure/glazed cladding to the cones, MEP, vertical transportation, specialist security installation, fit-out works and external works.

Designed by celebrity architect Frank Gehry, TDIC said the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi is conceived as a dynamic institution devoted to the acquisition and display of modern and contemporary art, recognised for the excellence of its architecture, collections, exhibitions, and educational initiatives.

It will promote the understanding and appreciation of art, architecture, and other manifestations of visual culture from a broadly international perspective, while sustaining the heritage of its local environment, the organisation adds. More info
